What was the scope of their involvement?
Our previous website was an old HTML hardcoded website which we would use Dreamweaver to update. It had no mobile platform, and we were really behind the times. We had incredibly valuable content on which we still received compliments, so it needed to be carefully ported to a new platform.
They completely rebuilt our website from the ground up, transitioning the site to WordPress. Listening to our wants and needs, they captured our general direction and our recent brand refresh. This involved changing typefaces, color schemes, and more on the new site.
Also, they integrated our portfolio into our website. We rely upon our digital portfolio, showcasing our designs and architecture work to bring in new clients. They made this interactive on our site and made it much less cumbersome to view.
What is the team composition?
We had a sales and marketing person as our initial contact, and from there we worked with a project manager as our main point of contact. There were three people behind him, including a lead graphics designer and a lead coding developer.
How did you come to work with Jordan Crown?
We’re located in Baltimore, and have a national presence. We wanted to find someone in Baltimore and did a Google search to make a shortlist of 3–4 firms.
After talking with the firms about our needs and wants, we had a really good feeling with Jordan Crown. We could tell they clearly had the technical capabilities, and they also had a personality that we felt would be great to work with.
How much have you invested with them?
Our initial investment was around $50,000. We ended up spending more after a little scope creep, with the total cost in the $55,000–$60,000 range.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together between April–October 2018. We soft-launched in August and did QA/QC work until October when we officially went live.
